Object of Desire: Converse Chuck Taylor II Gum

During this winter season, I have been wearing the Converse Chuck Taylor II Boot to keep my feet warm and dry (thanks to the neoprene insulation). Now that spring is almost upon us, it's time for me to go back to the lighter sneakers!


Converse has just released the Chuck Taylor All Star II Gum collection. What I like the most about this new sneaker is the gum rubber toe cap and sidewall, as this element adds a special touch to the normal Chuck Taylor design! Aside from the Nike Lunarlon sockliner, then new micro suede lining makes the sneaker more comfortable to wear.

To all my readers who live in Canada, you can now get a pair of this new sneakers at Foot Locker, Hudson's Bay, Little Burgundy and Sport Chek! This style comes in black, white, herbal and obsidian.

Object of Desire: New Balance 247 LUXE

I am sure a lot of people will agree with me that New Balance sneaker is one of the essential items in your wardrobe because of its versatility. In 2017, the brand is introducing a new silhouette and it is called 247 (which means you can wear it 24 hours a day).


The Luxe is the first drop of this new 247 model and will be available at selected stores worldwide (240 pairs for each colour). The cool thing about this pair of sneakers is that it has the DNA from other silhouettes. It draws "inspiration from heritage models includes the asymmetrical detail on the toe vamp that is a subtle reference to the 1300; a collar strap design taken from the 574 and 576; and, a sleeker more lightweight version of the 998 midsole".  I have seen the sneaker in real life and it is light and comfortable. It is also very stylish so will go well with many outfits in your wardrobe.

If you are a hardcore sneakerhead, I suggest you to find a way to get a pair of this limited edition sneakers before they are gone!

Object of Desire: Converse Essentials Apparel F/W 2016 Collection

If you follow me on Instagram, you probably see a lot of photos of me in some very cool outfits. However, on my day offs I wear a totally different set of clothing and those pieces must be comfy and timeless. Converse has recently released the new Essentials Collection and all the pieces are what I will wear on my day offs!

Just like a good pair of Chuck Taylor, this collection is designed for you to wear for a long time without ruining the fit. There are 3 key ideas behind all these pieces: quality, craftsmanship, and fit. As for the colour choices, most pieces come in the Converse classic palette such as light grey, egret, obsidian, red block, and black.

The collection is now available in Toronto at Good Neighbor, Blue Tile Lounge, NEON  and online at www.theclosetinc.com. If you need my personal recommendation, I will suggest you to get the hoodie because it is very comfortable!
